SEMI Career and Apprenticeship Network (SCAN)

The objectives of SCAN are to: build a national microelectronics apprenticeship network and model;
build awareness around rewarding industry careers; recruit, train, hire, and support a more diverse
workforce; provide stackable, recognized industry credentials; and help the industry shift its practices to
welcome alternative educational pathways and open the door to new and diverse talent pools.

SCAN’s design will embody dual perspectives: that of the employers, who need to fill significant workforce
shortages; and that of the participants, who need specific supports to complete the program and to feel
welcome and thrive in these new workplaces. SCAN will be first piloted in the San Francisco Bay Area of
California and in Phoenix, Arizona and is designed to scale across the U.S.
